Garden Update


Just a quick update, some new things are blooming!  My mother-in-law loves these flower posts, so I have to do them when new things bloom.  Remember the mystery bulb?  Turned out to be a gorgeous white gladiola.

The corner is just filling up with those intense blue lobelias, and the verbena is getting big. The petunias are still blooming too.

Flowers July 2014

Out back, the rhododendrons have shown their faces.

Rhodo wild white

One is pale pink.


Another is pure white.


Those torenias continue to be attractive to the hummingbird, but I still haven’t been fast enough with the camera to get her picture. At least I think its a girl! It is just a joy to be out here in the evening and water these lovelies.

I hope you enjoy the flowers as much as I do!!

  1. Hi Carole – I love flowers but I can’t grow anything! 🙂 Well, maybe I can grow a few easy things like lilies and iris, but they are pretty self-sufficient and resilient. I wish my thumb was just a bit greener! You have such lovely flowers and great pictures.

  2. I love flowers, all kinds especially those that draw in the hummingbirds and butterflies.

  3. Looks like someone has a Green Thumb! BEAUTIFUL!!

  4. I have total porch envy!

  5. Loving these pictures. We have had wonderful weather for July. It was 68 degrees for the high. That is a record for Hot Springs.

  6. how I love white flowers..your pics and yard and deck is just gorgeous..nice to visit other peoples gardens..
